Which every family has the piece of paper with the black dot on it must redraw from the box and who ever then gets the dot will “win” the lottery and get stoned. In order to cause suspense in the story Shirley Jackson uses foreshadowing, irony, and symbolism. At the beginning of the story there is many spots were foreshadowing is used. One place would be when the villagers start to go to the town square to begin. “Bobby Martin had already stuffed his pockets full of stones, and the other boys soon followed his example, selecting the smoothest and roundest stones;...” Before the drawing of the lottery starts the younger boys begin to gather rocks and put them in their pockets.

On a hot, sunny day of June I went to the park and played in a 5 on 5 basketball tournament with a few friends I have been playing basketball with since the 3rd grade. We didn’t have many people with height our tallest guy was just about 6’2 but that didn’t stop us from setting a goal to win this tournament and show no weakness to the other teams. We had the talent, the heart, and the discipline to push ourselves and to try and win this tournament. We started warming up on half of the court while our first competitors in the orange jerseys warmed up on the other half, the official finally blew the whistle and told us to get our starting 5 ready and on the court. Marcus at shooting guard, Montez at small forward, Chris at power forward, Josh
Naismith had to create a game that would pique the men’s interest, but not injure them for the upcoming football season. Naismith drew up the 13 original rules of basketball and asked a janitor for 2 rectangular boxes. The janitor came back with 2 peach baskets so Naismith nailed them up 10 feet high on opposite ends of the gym to be the baskets. There were 2 teams of 6 people each trying to score on the opposing goal. “Naismith tossed the ball, and the game of ‘basket ball’ was born.” Basketball caught on quick and many people mailed Naismith asking for the rules so they could play it themselves.

All he had was a Root beer soda can he had picked up of the ground before he had left for his quest. He brought out the can shaking it with all his might. As the fangs of the spider were about to hit Luxa’s throat Gregor popped open the pop can, and yelled “Attack! Attack!”(190). This quotation displays his bravery towards saving Luxa and as a result of nobody else dyeing on the quest.
We competed with each other in many sports during the week at sea. We enjoyed playing basketball as well as mini golf. My family participated in scavenger hunts many times.

Darry is hard on Ponyboy because he doesn’t want him to become a high school dropout like Soda. “Darry had cooked dinner; Baked chicken, potatoes, and corn.

I was pushed down, wrestled with, and experienced cuts, bumps, and bruises just like one of the boys. We would have cookouts and bonfires with corn-on-the-cob and the best hamburgers and hot dogs. We would have birthday parties that were the best I can remember. And on hot summer days we would go down to the pool to swim and play on the playground. Our nights were full of little league baseball games under the bridge at Paul J. Sciullo Field watching the pony league games just waiting for one of the big kids to crack a ball so hard it would hit the bridge.
I was wondering along the lake, when I met the greatest bunch of water droplets around. I guess you could say they were my homies. We all loved to dance together, especially to ‘Watch Me’. We all whipped and Nae Naed, and when we felt crazy enough, we sometimes even hit the quan. We were the greatest bunch of friends, but Yolanda fell into the pool of thirsty water drinking chickens.
